Austria ranked second in railway investment

With annual per capita investments of EUR 218, Austria is rated second in the EU. This was the conclusion of an analysis carried out by the Pro-Rail Alliance (Allianz pro Schiene) and the strategic management consultancy SCI Verkehr. Only Switzerland has a stronger commitment, with investments of EUR 265 annually in maintaining, expanding and constructing the railway network. In contrast, Germany ranks third from last with only EUR 77 per capita, behind Italy, Great Britain, Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark. France and Spain invest the least in their own railway systems.

In this way, Austria is strengthening its own freight transport capabilities and its global importance as a central hub in Europe for intercontinental traffic flows thanks to its geographical location. At present, four of the nine network corridors of the Trans-European Rail Network go through Austria, three of them through Vienna.
